Hours after Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife met him in Pakistan's Islamabad, with a glass barrier in between, defence experts criticised the meeting and termed it as inhuman.

Minutes into the meeting, Pakistan's foreign office released a photograph on Twitter, of Jadhav's mother and his wife seated on a sofa on their premises. Accompanying Jadhav's wife Chetankul and his mother Avanti to the meeting was JP Singh, India's deputy high commissioner in Islamabad.

After completion of the investigation into Jadhav, Pakistan offered to allow his wife to visit him, after which India requested that his mother also be permitted to meet him, the FO spokesperson said, and the request was subsequently granted.

It was a heavily choreographed event in which Jadhav's mother Avantika Jadhav and wife Chetana Jadhav, met him at a specially designed room at the foreign office. Jadhav's meeting with his family, he said, was a positive gesture from Pakistan's side as the country had nothing to hide.

The meeting was arranged at the foreign ministry and the "guests" were given VVIP protocol, which invited all-round criticism. Most of the conversation took place in Marathi and Hindi, the sources also said. The much-hyped meeting on Monday lasted for just about 40 minutes in high security.

Dr Faisal maintained Indian media was allowed to be part of this meeting however, there was no response. The family members arrived in Pakistan's capital around noon on a commercial flight via Dubai, and are scheduled to return to India later today.

Faisal also said that the family was told several days before the meeting that there would not be any physical contact. A Pakistani military court has sentenced the Indian prisoner to death on charges of spying.

Excessive video gaming to be recognized as mental health disorder
Researchers from ESET discovered that 10% of the gamers polled spent at least 12 to 24 hours per day playing video games. The presence of gaming disorder in the ICD-11 may have more extensive ramifications than we might suspect.


In India, officials downplayed the comments, maintaining that the Indian diplomat was only accompanying Jadhav's family and it can not be construed as "consular access".

Jadhav's wife and mother were both our guests, he said, adding: "They came and left in an honourable fashion".

He said Pakistan wanted that Jadhav's family should be allowed to meet the Pakistani and Indian media.

India had initiated the "unprovoked ceasefire violation" that led to an exchange of fire between the two countries' border forces, the ISPR said. Jadhav, meanwhile, was at the ministry before his family arrived there.

Jadhav was arrested in March this year, in Balochistan, Pakistan, over charges of alleged involvement in 'espionage and subversive activities for India's intelligence agency - the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW)'.

The ICJ suspended the execution, pending final judgment by the court.
